'Fairy' even less fun than a toothache

My advice for anyone who also wondered if Tooth Fairy might be good: Don't. Tooth Fairy is absolutely terrible, a miserable film that's mean spirited three-fourths of the time and artificially cute and sentimental the other fourth.

'Legion' marches to mediocrity

Packed with cardboard characters, a boggling number of elements lifted from superior films, and a plot more confusing than a football bat, Legion should shamefully retreat into cinema's January drudge.

Elements don't cohese in Jackson's 'Bones'

I'm not sure exactly what director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) was trying to accomplish with his adaptation of Alice Sebold's novel, "The Lovely Bones," a painfully depressing film about a 14-year-old girl who is murdered and watches her family, from heaven, as they cope with her murder.

'Book of Eli' is poorly written

Despite striking visuals, an effective sun-parched color scheme and two brilliant lead actors, The Book of Eli's lackluster screenplay makes it a forgettable chapter in cinema's post-apocalyptic tome.

Chan still having fun in 'Spy' comedy

It's obvious martial arts master Jackie Chan, now 55, can't do all the ridiculous, downright crazy things he used to do all the time. So while the stunts and action are somewhat tame (by Chan's standards) in The Spy Next Door, he still knows comedy and he's still having a good time.

Adams should have lept past this dull 'Year'

What is perhaps the most confusing note about Leap Year, a new romantic comedy starring Amy Adams, is that Universal Studios decided to release it this January (23 months after the last Feb. 29 and 25 months before the next). It's like releasing Independence Day in January or a Halloween film in March.

'Daybreakers' offers fun horror with a bite

Daybreakers, boldly released during a time when audiences can cleverly say that vampires suck, is a refreshing blend of science fiction and horror, embracing its R rating with style, mood and unabashed fun.

Clooney soars in Reitman's 'Air'

Jason Reitman appears to be interested in offbeat characters, and his interest continues to manifest itself in excellent films.

Streep, Baldwin and Martin shine in 'Complicated' comedy

I never thought I would see a film in which Meryl Streep, who has been nominated for 15 Oscars, was caught between 'Saturday Night Live' favorites Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

Ritchie's at home with 'Holmes'

This latest interpretation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary detective novels plays on the understated aspects of those stories, highlighting the more visceral facets of Sherlock Holmes' investigations, the seemingly neurotic quirks that balance his genius, and his brotherly relationship with friend and colleague Dr. Watson.

Movies That Christmas Almost Forgot

Your Mountain Times film critics would like to offer something heavy on the unconventional - Christmas movies that don't necessarily fit in, but have somehow found their way onto Santa's list, be they naughty, nice or an odd combination of the two.

Cameron returns triumphantly with bold 'Avatar'

It's been 12 years since James Cameron proved he was more than just the master of action, as the writer/director famous for Aliens and the first two Terminator films won dozens of awards, and millions of hearts, with Titanic.

Disney magic alive in jazzy fairy tale

What's wonderful about this film is that there's nothing particularly ground-breaking here - it's meant to be captured in the same simple style that brought Pinocchio, Dumbo, Bernard and Bianca to life. It doesn't only capture the beauty of the animation, but the adventurous, fun spirit audiences expect from Disney films.

Coens win again with 'A Serious Man'

Put simply, A Serious Man is vintage Coen brothers, and an excellent film at that.

'Everybody's' not so fine

Part of me's always glad to see a protagonist named Frank.

'Ninja Assassin' belongs in the shadows

Ninjas aren't supposed to be seen, and the same should apply to Ninja Assassin.

'Old Dogs' need to learn better tricks

This movie is painfully unfunny. The story and plot set-ups are as generic as possible, and so are the "jokes" that they create.

'Twilight Saga' gets more ridiculous with 'New Moon'

The explosion of a franchise is always interesting to watch, as books or comic book adaptations become more than just films and turn into a cultural phenomenon. The Twilight series, in terms of quality, has no place among these franchises.

'2012' nothing but morbid eye-candy

Roland Emmerich's 2012 warns us the end is near, but for this 158-minute disaster epic, the end can't come soon enough.

'Christmas Carol' humbug
